My family went here last summer. The entertainment squad was always polite and happy even though they work so many hours for so long. So close to the airport but not too close to where you hear all the planes. They serve you drinks while you wait in line, we waited for 10 mins during a really busy check in... More

The resort staff is simply amazing !! The food was awesome, the rooms were clean and cool. And yes the beach is not what you would expect from a popular resort but it is in a cove so there is seaweed and slime on the bottom and yes close to shore. I would go back there in a heartbeat, we... More

My family and I just returned from Riu, Montego Bay. We stayed from 4/14-19. Upon check in we were greeted with a friendly smile and a lovely cocktail. We had a family size room which was a perfect size for the 4 of us. We had plenty of sleeping room and the beds were comfortable. The buffet for breakfast was... More

My boyfriend and I visited this resort from Feb 21 to 28, 2014. Watersports: We made a lot of use of the watersports at the resort. We signed up for snorkeling ($30USD) and did 3 dives ($40USD each, equipment rentals incl). All sites were great and I was surprised by the animal life on the reefs, despite the poor condition...

My wife and I just returned April 19, 2014 from a week in Jamaica at the Hotel Riu, Montego Bay. Clean room, happy, friendly, helpful staff; beautiful beach, nice pool, beautiful hotel grounds, and really excellent food. The only thing I could mark them down on would be the too firm bed, but the housekeeping staff found us a foam... More

Just returned from RIU Montego Bay last night! It was an amazing trip and I would def return. Loved the beach and the lovely views. The staff were all so happy and welcoming to their island. Everyone was eager to get you whatever you wanted and never got any attitude or dirty looks for not tipping. You need to bring... More

My friend and I stayed here from April 11-18/14. An awesome trip was had. Of course from reading some previous reviews we had a few reservations of the resort, but soon realized we had nothing to worry about. The front desk staff were very good and efficient, check in went smooth, we got what we requested, which was a room... More

I found the service to be good here as long as you tipped, every time you wanted something. If you're looking for a romantic vacation this is not the place. The only thing that made it tolerable was that I was with a great group of people. The food was not that good and the rooms were AWFUL! Two beds... More

This was our 2nd time here, as we loved it so much last year! This year was somewhat different though. Check in was seamless, our room was not ready, as we expected (we were earlier than check in time). Our room was in the 5000 building, which I like more than the 4000 from last year. Although we didn’t have... More

Arrived 24th March and stayed for 2 weeks! Had a fantastic time. Staff are amazing, food is plentiful, rooms are huge and hotel is literally 5 mins transfer which is just what your need after a 10 hour flight. Really enjoyed the Riu and would recommend. I have been to Ochio Rios before, and far prefer Montego Bay. Some reviews... More
